My research career has gained me extensive experience of ethnographic research with children, the design and evaluation of digital products for children and the development and evaluation of touchscreen interfaces. In recent times I have been conducting research with older adults using participatory design techniques. I also have a keen interest in educational technology and have published on my experiences of in-the-wild evaluations of museum interactives developed for the National Trust for Scotland, and on the use of digital simulations in professional education.
My research interests are chiefly interaction design and information behaviour.
I am currently working on EPSRC funded project investigating mobile text entry for older adults (OATS) with Mark Dunlop and Andreas Komninos.
I am a member of the Mobiquitous Lab and i-lab research groups.
